Charlotte Rampling nearly unrecognizable for Italian Vogue

Charlotte Rampling has been the subject of several posts on this blog and after watching the documentary made about her and everyone’s fascination with her face, titled “The Look”(2011), I am still impressed by how well she photographs. Photographer Michel Comte (who shot these great photos of Jeremy Irons here) took this snapshot of an almost unrecognizable Rampling for Italian Vogue in 1992.

NB – Here is Rampling’s portrait by Youssef Nabil, wearing a veil. This is her again by David Lynch & Juergen Teller naked.

Study these “Lessons of Darkness”

© Werner Herzog‘s “LESSONS OF DARKNESS” (1992) is a documentary about ravaged oil fields in Kuwait.
Shot from the perspective of an alien, looking down at the area that is constantly set on fire.
Visually stunning and poetic.
